California-based Belcampo has re-launched its eco-resort in southern Belize under the name Copal Tree Lodge.
As part of the rebranding, the lodge is proud to partner with anew farm-to-flask initiative: Copal Tree Distillery, located adjacent to the hotel.
Copal Tree Distillery is an initiative to support sustainable agriculture causes in Belize via producing and selling premium organic spirits.
As part of this re-brand from Belcampo Belize to Copal Tree Lodge, Muy’Ono Hospitality will provide resort management services to the lodge.
The intimate resort, situated within the tropical canopy of Punta Gorda, provides luxury accommodations to those seeking a retreat among one of the world’s most pristine natural environments.
A destination for food lovers, passionate fly fishermen and adventure seekers, Copal Tree Lodge features 16 private suites and a three-bedroom villa, as well as an on-site farm, intimate spa, two pools, hiking trails, a rum bar and a locally-inspired restaurant.
At the heart of Copal Tree Lodge are the resort’s agricultural practices, including the first certified-organic farm in Belize growing indigenous crops such as coffee, cacao, sugar cane and vanilla.
This winter, the lodge has added to its agronomic expertise by introducing the Copal Tree Distillery.
As part of the new initiative, the distillery has begun combining heirloom sugar cane and spices grown on the property to create a premium spirit that will be aged and bottled in the heart of the rainforest.
The new craft distillery will utilise high quality inputs and natural rain water to produce Coppalli Rum, available starting in June 2018.
Copal Tree Distillery is designed to operate as a zero-impact system, powered by sustainable regenerative biomass and supporting the full-circle conversion of production waste into agricultural inputs.
Guests will be able to taste Copal Tree Distillery’s newest rum exports at the lodge’s rum bar, where they can sip and savour a variety of cocktails made from local ingredients.
